Iberian Peninsula Ports


The world-famous and vibrant port city of Barcelona is the starting and ending point for many of the cruises that navigate the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of the Mediterranean region. This exciting city has so much to offer the discerning traveller, from stunning architecture and areas of exceptional natural beauty, to a plethora of wonderful shopping and dining experiences, which show off the fascinating local culture.

Some of Barcelona’s most popular sightseeing opportunities including Gaudi’s majestic La Sagrada Familia cathedral, the bustling Las Ramblas shopping street and the incredible Camp Nou – the home of Barcelona Football Club – where guided tours are available to all.


Sometimes known as The Rock, Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located off the southern coast of Spain on the Iberian Peninsula and is regularly featured on Mediterranean cruise itineraries. The island of Gibraltar has a distinctly British ambience, but with a pleasant Spanish climate, which creates a particularly unique and intriguing setting.

One of the most popular excursions in Gibraltar is a trip to the Upper Rock, where – perhaps the islands most famous residents – the Barbary macaques reside. The centre of the island is a labyrinth of quaint shopping streets and interesting monuments, so be sure to take time to wander and explore as much as possible.


Built across seven hills, Portugal’s magnificent capital of Lisbon offers a mix of both contemporary and historic culture as well as a sunny Iberian climate, typical of the region. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this charming city boasts a plethora of white-washed buildings and beautiful coastal scenery, capturing the hearts and minds of all types of holidaymakers.

Whilst in the city, be sure to take a trip on one of the famous funicular railways that lead to various sites within Lisbon. Also, make sure to observe the city’s range of stunning architecture found in many of the region’s most historic and intriguing districts.
